I have the opportunity to acquire a Chipmaster from a local engineering shop
as the starting point for my workshop.
I have looked at lathes.co.uk, which is a fountain of good knowledge. It
looks like it is a good piece of kit. The speed control looks a bit hairy
It is a 3 phase unit, so I will need some form of conversion.
A few questions arise.
1) The vendor is open to offers, any idea of value? A web search reveals a
huge range of prices.
2) Has anyone had any experience of a single phase conversion on the
chipmaster. An inverter seems to be the way to go, any recommendations?
3) Anything I should be looking out for why I go and have a look at it?
4)Any other comments experience of this lathe
